Read the First 3 Chapters of Curtis’ Playground

EW has the first three chapters of Playground, Curtis Jackson’s foray into the teen/street-lit market, available for your review.

The book tells the story of a 13 year old bully named Butterball and is loosely based on Boo-Boo’s own childhood. Check out the book’s intro below.

I’ll be the first to admit that not everything I’ve done in my life has been role-model material. I’ve been on the wrong side of the law. I’ve been in violent situations. I’vealso been a bully. I know how a person gets to be likethat. That’s why I wanted to tell this story: to show a kid who has become a bully—how and why that happened,and whether or not he can move past it.

Writing Playground was a personal journey for me.There’s a lot of me in Butterball. I drew on events that happened in my childhood and adolescence as well as things I saw around me. I also tapped into some of the feelings I remember having at that age—feelings aboutmy family, feelings about my future, feelings about other kids on the playground.Living life on the edge has taught me a lot, like the fact that being mentally strong will get you ahead in life. But being a bully won’t get you anywhere. Some kids don’t figure that out until it’s too late. Does Butterball? You’ll have to read the book to find out.

    How ironic that the bitch that wouldnt fuck you for listening to Nas music would actually fuck Nas…

    If she dont fuck you over some music,the problem is you.

    ^
    I think its the combination of both… what would make you play nas when you got a chick you hoping to smash riding shotgun?…

    And after she mentioned she aint like the music.. why wouldnt you change it to some other shit?

    Recent rumors floated around that former video vixen Karrine Steffans was due to marry her old flame Lil Wayne in Las Vegas.

    However, Karrine told VIBE that she’s already gotten married earlier this week… but to another dread-locked bachelor.

    @Troy

    What’s your definition of simp? It might could be wrong…

    @SICK,If you married her,you still got something for her,no? Unless she playing child support/visitation games…then you could justifiably hate her.

    @A Chick,Music is irrelevant…she either want this thang or not

  56. Jersey*made*me Says:

    @Troy

    Balling>>tricking>>simping(whatever the fuck that is)

    If you got real paper(millions) you balling,you aint tripping off buying no purses,drinks,shoes,trips….that’s peanuts.

    Broke niggas take issue with tricking cuz that shit hurt they pockets. That’s why bad bitches avoid broke niggas. The only way abroke nigga can have a bad bitch is if you got the gifft of gab to pull her,then slay her with some good dick.

    I dont recognize all that other bullshit.
